A busy day indeed...
May 02, 2009

Well, today was the last of four days of work in a row. I'm generally only supposed to get 20 hours of work per week, leaving me free to do freelance work on the side (and work on the site), but this week I got 32 and so the last 4 days have been spent with little bits of busy work outside of my day job.

Today was hectic like you wouldn't believe, with all sorts of mundane things I won't relate here and a few very stressful moments. I finally got off work a few hours ago and since then I've spent the time updating the site with news stories and content--a big task tonight--going through e-mail and assorted other things.

Now I can get back to the game I'm playing for a little while before going to sleep. I'm really almost done with it--truly, I am!--and then it'll be back to Dragon Quest V, possibly for the rest of the weekend or alternating with Dokapon Journey that I am exceited to play. There were some other games that have come in, but those will be going out to freelancers because I like to share.

Plus I'm too busy to tackle every project that comes to me. Clearly.

Good to hear you're still alive and kicking, Jason. I didn't play DQ 5 myself. I've actually only played the first and eighth DQ. I didn't finish either of them. I find it really hard to get into turn based RPGs these days.

I find it really difficult these days to get into action-RPGs, so I suspect that we're just the opposite. I like how fast-paced the turn-based stuff is, versus the miserable grind of the action-RPG that slows things down to a crawl.

I'll take strategy RPGs like Fire Emblem over action or turn based RPGs any day. :D

Anyway, I get the impression that in DQ 5, there is only one playable human character. The rest appear to be monsters from what I've seen. Interesting dynamic.

Unless the game was dramatically changed from the Super Famicom version, there's more than one human character. Due to plot twists, your main character is the only one that is a permanent member of your party (others come and go) AND there are times when it just is your main dude and a few monsters, but he's not the only human character.
